Bird watching can be fun and rewarding, even from your own backyard!
The first step in learning to birdwatch is simply to use your eyes and ears and observe what’s around you. Spring migration is a great time to see who is stopping by your yard.
Watch this video to see if Wildsight educators Ayla and Kim can help Charlee the Chickadee find her family. Follow up by using things found around the house to dress up as your favourite birds. Afterwards, test your birding skills by playing a game of Backyard Bird Bingo and watch for birds using your own homemade binoculars!
We’d love to see photos of your students (or children) dressed up like one of the birds they found! Please post them to our Wildsight Education at Home Facebook group to create a collection of backyard birds across the Columbia Basin.
